Big Changes Coming To Route 208 Recently there has been a lot of buzz around the lake about a possible re- alignment of Rt. 208 a 3.6 mile stretch of road between the Rt. 522 inter- section and before the 208 bridge over Lake Anna. The state is reviewing multiple data to decide what needs to be done. Because this project is only in the in the planning and engineering phase the Virginia Department of Transportations VDOT Stacy Londrey Acting CommunicationsManager from the VDOT Culpeper District said that the route is technically not being realigned but instead reconstructed with im- provements. According to Londrey the improve- ments being considered are additional turn lanes widening the shoulders and re-grading the clear zone to reduce injury risks if a vehicle runs off the roadaslightadjustment of the road and better storm-water management. This project will cost an estimated 18.9 million but VDOT only has fund- ing of 1.1 for preliminary engineering. Roadway projects are funded by the Commonwealth Trans- portation Board through what we call the Six-Year Improvement program Londrey said. This pro- gram is updated annu- ally every June through a complex process with drafts available for view- ing around the first of April. Because this proj- ect is in the early phases and VDOT is waiting for the funding to become available the construc- tion most likely would begin in late 2018 if the project is decided. Un- til it is decided Londrey said VDOT will continue to work on design plans and if funding becomes available for the right of way acquisition and con- struction phases we an- ticipate holding a public hearing early next year.
